Cheesecake Brownies

What's better than cheesecake?
What's better than a brownie?
The two together...just saying.

Yesterday my knitting group was here.
We have been meeting weekly for several years.
We meet most Wednesdays and alternate
going to each other's homes.
The hostess usually provides
coffee, tea and a little snack.
Yesterday I made

Cheesecake Brownies

Start by making your favorite brownie recipe.

Reserve about 1/2 cup of the batter,
and spread the rest in an 8-inch square baking pan.

In another bowl, beat 8-oz. cream cheese until smooth.
Add 1/4c. + 2T sugar
and beat until fluffy, about 2 minutes.
Add 1 egg and 1t. vanilla, beating well.

Pour the cream cheese mixture on top of the brownie layer in pan
and smooth mixture until it reaches all the edges.

Combine 1T milk with the reserved brownie batter.
Stir well.

Drop spoonfuls on top of the cheesecake layer.

Drag the tip of a knife
through the brownie and the cheesecake layers
to create swirls.

Bake 25-30 minutes, or just until the center is set.
Let cool.
Cut into squares,
Makes 1 dozen Cheesecake Brownies.

What is better than a Cheesecake Brownie?
Eating them with your knitting buddies...

Happy Spring everyone!
